Kajo Keji: Senke

The Senke motorbike is popular in South Sudan and goes for $400 to $500, from the factory in Heshan, China is truly a feat of globalisation. Shipped, unloaded, trucked and driven across the Sudanese border to Juba, where customers make the purchase and drive them to the four corners of this country. This one in Kajo Keji.

We often think of globalisation as a massive supply chain, forgetting the smaller, informal links in that chain. Who is willing to make a market, where and why.
